American Nuclear Society Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsored by American Nuclear Society

Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 96

ANS student members are the future of the society and we believe in rewarding our members for their academic, service, and leadership excellence. ANS scholarships are awarded to applicants that have personified the high standards set by the Society and since 1979, over $6 million in scholarships have been distributed.

Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshmen, undergraduates, and graduate students, and are distributed at the beginning of each school year. Evaluation is based upon numerous factors, such as, academic excellence, leadership within the ANS, references, career goals, and financial need.

Eligibility

Undergraduate and graduate scholarships are open to ANS student members enrolled in a course of study relating to a degree in nuclear science or nuclear engineering at an accredited university in the United States (or its territories).

ANS members from established international student sections are also eligible to apply for ANS undergraduate scholarships (Sophomore, Junior and Senior only).

Incoming freshmen scholarships are open to graduating high-school seniors who have enrolled full-time in college courses pursuing science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) with an interest in working in nuclear science and technology. Recipients of the Incoming Freshman scholarships are required to join ANS prior to the distribution of funds.

All applications, except those for incoming freshmen, must be sponsored by an academic/faculty advisor (preferably from an ANS Student Section or Alpha Nu Sigma Chapter).
